His decisions on declaring April 24 as the Armenian Genocide commemoration day in the national calendar, restoring the law criminalizing the denial of the Armenian Genocide, assisting the creation of a center of Armenian memory and civilization meet the expectations of ethnic Armenians of France, who are the descendants of the first genocide of the 20th century”, the statement says.

CCAF emphasized that it will mobilize efforts to achieve the goals.
